March for Our Lives Die-In

By Community Alliance Staff

At least a half dozen children, teenagers and adults lay motionless outside the Clovis office of Rep. Devin Nunes (R–Tulare). No, it was not another mass shooting, fortunately. But organizers of the Die-In participated in hopes of preventing another one.

Fresno’s March for Our Lives organized the demonstration on June 12, in which they called for regulation aimed at preventing gun violence. Protesters also condemned Nunes’ contributions from the National Rifle Association, which as of May 21, were $46,350 for the current cycle, according to data released by the Federal Election Commission and disclosed on opensecrets.org.

The demonstrators tried to lay still for 720 seconds, or 12 minutes, to commemorate the deaths of 72 people in the Pulse terror shooting two years ago. They were interrupted by a police detective who asked everyone to move off the sidewalk and onto the easement so as not to block pedestrian traffic.

A protester is part of the “die-in.”
